Thais should prepare for Tokyo 2020

SURFING: Welcome to another week of surf action. Firstly, big fist bump and high fives all around as surfing has been officially accepted into the 2020 Olympic Games in Japan.

Phuket’s beaches have had a consistent surge of swells this week and even though the wind was up it gave surfers plenty of fun.
Phuket’s beaches have had a consistent surge of swells this week and even though the wind was up it gave surfers plenty of fun.

This is very exciting news for surfers globally, and it now means Thailand can start grooming it’s very own to qualify for what will no doubt be a memorable occasion for the sport that has petitioned this for many years now.

Now on to local news, Phuket’s beaches have had a consistent surge of swells this week and even though the wind was up it gave us plenty of fun. As the wind is coming from the Southwest, try and find those southern corners which will be more protected and have cleaner waves.

Word around the camp fire is that there will be at least two more surf contests this year, so keep practising and stay tuned for more details.

Tim’s Tip: Look for the rip currents to paddle out on as the waves won’t dump on you and the current will help take you out the back.
